4.0 out of 5 stars Yoko: the original "Fly" girl, 17 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Fly (2cd Slim) (Audio CD)
For her second solo album, Yoko expanded upon the format used on her first. This time dividing the two-album set between her rock jams on disc one and her avant-garde pieces on disc two.
For the most part, the meat of the album lays on disc one. This disc features Yoko & the Plastic Ono Band on the singles "Midsummer New York", "Mrs. Lennon", "Mind Train", "Open Your Box" (featured here as "Hirake"), and the b-side "Don't Worry Kyoko". Also featured are the breezy "Mind Holes" and the Indian sounding "O'Wind".
Side two finds Yoko with Joe Jones' 'Tone Deaf' band, which features musical instruments designed by Jones, which play themselves with minimal (if any) human manipulation. Of these tracks, probably the most noteworthy is "Don't Count the Waves", an aural picture in which one can almost imagine Yoko's voice as the crashing waves of the ocean. Other noteworthy cuts on disc two are of course "Fly", "Airmale" and the Ono classic "Telephone Piece" (which consists of a ringing phone, then Yoko's voice saying "Hello, This is Yoko..." then a dial tone).
The album was not quite as strong as the 'Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band' LP, and hadn't yet reached the rock-oriented levels of 'Approximately Infinite Universe', but was definitely a classic album. It has become common in recent years to associate this album with the phrase "Oh yeah, we used to drop acid and listen to Yoko Ono's 'Fly' album", but I think anyone with an imagination could appreciate this album even without the induced state.

Nah,i really like this offering from Mrs.Lennon..Way over the top again..and was the last in the series of Yoko's screaming period..shame really because it such an influential sound..Eric Clapton takes part on this and so does Ringo Starr again..and being a double C.D.,you may need a drink to steady you nerves for part Two!..Well done Yoko..Supurb effort!
